Having sealed their first Premier League crown, Liverpool could perhaps be forgiven for taken their foot off the pedal. After a humbling 4-0 defeat to Manchester City however, the Reds appear to still have their shooting boots on and in Gameweek 35+, Mohamed Salah is one to consider if not already in our squads.
Putting two past Brighton on Wednesday evening, the Egyptian king looked sharp and though five behind the leader in the race for the Golden Boot, could yet be in the running with another brace or two.
With three goals and as many assists in five, Salah continues to reward his fantasy owners who persist with his 12.5 price-tag and as Burnley roll up to Anfield this weekend, Liverpool’s number 11 could be in for more favour – now tied at the top of the points table with Kevin De Bruyne on 223.
The Reds have no domestic European commitments remaining this season, nor FA Cup considerations meaning Salah looks set to be named in Jurgen Klopp‘s starting XI for the four games remaining.
As the hosts look to end the season on a high also, Salah’s 17 goals already may fall short in retaining his scoring crown from last season, however his owners could reap reaches of their own this weekend.
It may have taken Jamie Vardy a few games to get his groove back after the restart but after netting a late leveller away to Arsenal on Tuesday, the Foxes’ hit-man will be looking to score for a third game running on the road to an AFC Bournemouth side still battling against the current.
With three goals in two outings, the former England man has joined Kelechi Iheanacho with two goals after the resumption of the league but the difference with Vardy – as we have seen in the past – is the latter is perhaps the English top flight’s most form-reliant striker.
Still holding a two-goal advantage in the pursuit of the top scorer gong, Vardy will see a trip to the Vitality Stadium as the perfect opportunity to stretch his lead as those behind him attempt to pull nearer.
The Cherries meanwhile are still left with a huge amount to do to avoid the drop and even after earning a point against Spurs, the hosts will find Leicester a very different customer. With Bournemouth with little option but to seek the win, Vardy arrives in the knowledge he has netted against the Cherries on four separate Premier League occasions. Will be prowling for more spoils in Gameweek 35+.
Despite losing their Premier League crown to Liverpool, Manchester City have not lost of their desire to impress and after Pep Guardiola‘s men hit Newcastle United for five in midweek – the third time the Citizens have hit four past an opposition since the restart – Gabriel Jesus is back on the fantasy radar.
With Sergio Aguero absent, Jesus ended his goal drought in the thrashing of the Magpies and renowned as a form player the Brazilian could be hitting form as a trip to Brighton awaits in Gameweek 35+.
Playing just over an hour at the Etihad, Jesus should be fresh for the journey to the South coast on Saturday evening. After missing the visit of Graham Potter‘s men earlier this season, the 11-goal Brazilian forward will be keen to end his rather inconsistent campaign on a high.
In recent Fantasy Premier League seasons, managers have largely turned to their Manchester United’s back line for regular points, however such has the United goal machine returned with a vengeance of late, the problem now is who is the real differential is. This week, we pin those hopes on Bruno Fernandes once more.
After just seven months in English football, the Portuguese is paving the way toward becoming a fantasy icon. Though Fernandes has now evidently opted to share penalty duties with Marcus Rashford, that did not stop the midfielder scoring against Bournemouth – then again from the spot against Aston Villa.
Adding yet another assist for Pogba’s goal at Villa Park, Fernandes has notched seven goals and six assists in ten league games in a Red Devils’ shirt with a tally of 15 bonus points also. Indeed, the Portuguese has claimed extras in six out of ten contests, and has failed to score or assist just twice in all league games played.
As Southampton arrive at Old Travel in equally fine attacking fettle, the two sides are set to play out what could be an eye-catching encounter. It may be hard to keep Mason Greenwood out of the headlines right now, but we are banking on Bruno to be United’s catalyst once more.
For our final pick of Gameweek 35+, we switch attentions to the North London derby and though Arsenal are the visiting side to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this weekend, Buyako Saka could be set to become a Gunners’ cult hero.
Denied winning their third league game on the bounce, Mikel Arteta‘s side come into the clash with Spurs full of optimism against a Lilywhites side that failed to score or even have a shot on target against basement dwellers Bournemouth last time out.
In the case of Saka, the England starlet has largely made up the number in many fantasy teams until now, but with the Gunners now fully-fit in the left-back areas with Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac, Saka has been pushed up into a wing role together with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and one of Eddie Nketiah or Alexandre Lacazette.
After Nketiah’s dismissal on Tuesday evening, the 4.7 priced midfielder is poised to cause havoc for Spurs in Gameweek 35+ and as his sublime finish against Wolves showed is blooming into another of England’s many attacking talents.
With just a single goal to his name, potential buyers may be put off but the 18-year-old looks the real deal. Jose Mourinho‘s side at home may look a little more settled than on their away travails but in the derby, the rule book goes out the window. Saka could be a very useful points asset for the NLD.
Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 35+ deadline is Saturday, 11:30 UK time.
